Favorite Photos of 2015
With 2015 coming to a close, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos of the year. As I compiled these photos, I am humbled by the amount of support that I have continued to receive this past year! I am so grateful and would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of you! I am so appreciative of your time spent reading Ohio Girl Travels and the amazing positive feedback which inspires me to write and share more with you! I truly feel blessed to walk through this world with the support of so many family, friends, and readers!
2015 took me to many wonderful places around Ohio, the United States, and the World! While browsing through thousands of photos, it was hard to choose my favorites. Because really, every photograph is my favorite! Every picture transports me back to that moment in time, and in life, those moments are what makes our life complete! I smile and reflect on the wonderful memories I have made and how incredibly blessed I am, knowing that I am living my life to the fullest! As you look through a few of my favorite photos of 2015, I encourage you to browse your own 2015 photo collection and reflect upon the memories you made!
I hope you enjoy my favorite photos of 2015!

The loves of my life:
My husband ~ Chad
I am incredibly blessed to have my husband’s love, friendship, and support! This year we celebrated 10 years of marriage and 20 years together (we were middle school sweethearts)! Chad’s constant encouragement, love, and support makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world!
My dogs ~ Annabelle and Izzy
This year I lost my beloved Golden Retriever, Annabelle to cancer. She was my best friend, confidant, constant companion, and one of the greatest loves of my life! Although it was hard losing such an amazing soul, I am blessed and privileged to have spent 9.5 years with her! The memories of her beautiful golden smile will remain in my heart forever!
Izzy and Annabelle have been inseparable for the last 8 years, so I can only imagine how lost Izzy must feel not having her best friend beside her! It has taken several months, but I think Izzy has finally come to terms with the loss of Annabelle. Izzy now gets even more spoiled, being the only dog!
I hope you enjoyed a few of my favorite photos of 2015! Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
